Rev. William Pelech has been involved with Spiritualism since the 1970’s. He was drawn to Spiritualism because it offered more than faith in an afterlife but actual evidence of our essential nature as spirit beings. His mediumistic development progressed under the guidance of Rev. David Oliver, leading to his demonstrating spirit communication at church services. Over the years he has given over 150 public demonstrations and has led development circles since 2003. He has also become a certified spiritual healer. In addition, he has also attended over 20 courses focusing on mediumship at Arthur Findlay College at Stansted England and has demonstrated as a visiting medium at the Lilydale Spiritualist Community. He was ordained as a minister by the Spiritualist Church of Canada in 2015. Rev. William graduated from the University of British Columbia with a masters degree in clinical social work in 1994. He continued his studies and completed a PhD at Wilfrid Laurier University in 2002. He has extensive experience in individual and group psychotherapy, with particular experience in working with grief, depression, anxiety, and anger management. His therapeutic frame informed by person-centred and mindfulness-based approaches.
He believes that one of the greatest gifts given to the world by Spiritualism is releasing humanity from the illusion of death. For, if one is not afraid of death, what is there truly be afraid of in this world. Further, he has come to realize how the power of Spirit transforms our lives, offering guidance and profoundly shifting our perspectives on our world and our essential nature.
